23 months a little late...

In only 20 days my baby boy will be 2 years old. Kyle and I just asked ourselves this evening where our baby had went? It was another rough day at daycare. I have almost come to the conclusion that Bronson is just a little more attached than some. I don't know if he will ever get used to being left under someone else's care for the entire day. I am having major mommy guilt. I keep telling myself that sometime in the near future things will get better and I might be able to stay at home. None of us can go without insurance so there is no choice but to get out there and log 40 hours a week. I know that I am a good mommy; I just struggle when I know that he just wants to cuddle up and be loved on. We spent this afternoon snuggled up together and enjoyed taking the time to read The Polar Express before bed. I don't want to jinx it but he is now sleeping soundly in his own bed. Kyle and I are trying to lay down a little more rules in regards to his sleeping routine.

Bronson is growing like crazy and officially weighs 26 pounds. I don't know how tall he is now, but he is almost able to wear size 2T so that gives you a little clue. I think that he seems to take after his Grandpa Bill and looks to have his build. He is such a sweet boy and I love every minute that I get to spend with him. We have been having a lot going on lately with some family issues. Kyle's Grandma Kerfoot, one of the sweetest women I have ever known, is really struggling and between Ann, Bill, and Kyle there have been lots of trips made over the pass. It is never easy to deal with end of life issues. I am praying for lots of peace. I am also comforted in knowing that Grandma Kerfoot is one of the strongest Christian women that I know and will be with the Lord soon. Please pray for our family as we deal in this sensitive time.

On to the Highlights:
-Bronson is talking all the time. Some of it we don't understand, but we love the fact that he tries to say everyone's names now and can say all of his friends names.
-He is obsessed with the song "Muffin Man" by pronounces it manman. It is super cute, but annoying to listen to all at the same time.
-He still loves the vacuum, but now has a pet name for it too and calls it the Abyer. We think he might be trying to call it the spider because daddy sucked one of them up in it.
-He loves stuffed animals and can name pretty much all of the major animals.
-He has began to potty train and is very interested in wearing pull ups.
-He has the clean gene and loves to mop, sweep, and dust our entire house. You have to keep the wipes put away or he will use all of them to "help" mommy.
-He has so many teeth that I can't count. I think he has somewhere between 12 and 14.
-He still doesn't eat much, but loves num nums.
